Minnesota Power and the Boswell Energy Center installed a platform and live camera so you can view the Falcons that live there, doing Falcon things – ” For the last 13 years, a pair of migrating Peregrine falcons has been returning to a nesting platform 220 feet up on a 350-foot stack at Minnesota Power’s Boswell Energy Center near Grand Rapids, Minn., to raise their offspring. Back in ’91, in an effort to help preserve this endangered raptor, Minnesota Power employees at Boswell installed a nesting platform on a stack. In ’92, a lone male — ultimately named Bandit–found refuge on the nest, and in ’93, Bandit and a female dubbed Skydancer raised two chicks in the nest, the first ever in Itasca County. Since then, 37 chicks have been raised on the platform.” [via] – Link.

Downtown Dayton Ohio also has a nesting pair of peregrine falcons with three webcams watching them. Visit the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery Falcon Cam Page to see them. The nest atop the AT&T building in Dayton.
The chicks have hatched, so there’s been quite a bit of activity recently.
Xcel Energy has a number of different cams and species at their powerplants. They can all be found here.
